I have finally finished the two baby quilts I've been making for my GP. They have two doctors who are having babies in the next few months and so I've been busy creating some special quilts for them. We know the sex of one (a boy) so I had to be careful with my choice of colours.
I made the quilts using the I Spy genre. Here's the quilt for a boy/girl. I chose this paper pieced star pattern and was very happy with the outcome. Some I Spy fabrics in the centre of the stars and lots of lots of I Spy around the outside border. Here's a close up of one block:
The other quilt is for a boy, so I was able to let my head go with the fabrics. I chose an I Spy quilt idea that I've used before.
Each block is 9" and consists of 1 x 6" square, 1 x 3" square, and 6 x 2" x 3" rectangles. You make the blocks and then just put them together at random, with the 6" square in different positions. Here's a block:
